NEW YORK — Coty is once again making changes to its consumer beauty division. A number of executive changes within the consumer beauty leadership team were announced Wednesday internally within the company, including the departure of Shannon Curtin, the senior vice president for consumer beauty in North America, according to a published report.

The new leadership changes  will be effective Sept. 1, the report confirmed.

Curtin, who was the head of  the integration of consumer beauty after Procter & Gamble divested 41 of its beauty brands to Coty, will be departing the company “to pursue other interests.” She is to be succeeded by Andrew Stanleick, currently the senior vice president of consumer beauty in Europe. A former Walgreens Boots Alliance exec, Curtin joined Coty in 2016, and led the U.S. relaunches of key brands within the Consumer Beauty portfolio, including CoverGirl, Sally Hansen and Rimmel.

Stanleick has been with Coty for just over a year — he was selected in April 2017 to lead consumer beauty in Europe. Prior to that, he served as president and chief executive officer of Coach Europe, and before that led the company’s business in Southeast Asia and the Pacific. However, his background is in beauty — he spent 13 years at L’Oréal in various positions in international markets, including the U.K., Russia, Poland and Malaysia, and began his career at Unilever. Stanleick, who is based in Geneva, will move to the New York office and continue to report to Laurent Kleitman, president of consumer beauty.

Taking over Stanleick’s role in Europe is Simone Dominici, who is new to Coty. Dominici most recently served as a senior adviser for luxury retail and consumer at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Dominici will report to Kleitman.
